The level of service and hospitality at the Calergi Residence is simply the best I have ever encountered. The apartment was extremely clean and the beds are so comfortable. The attention to detail is what really makes this place a dream, down to the service and friendliness of all the staff to the little extras the cleaning staff provide. I cannot recommend it highly enough! The location is great as Rethymnon is on your doorstep. Thank you Calergi Residence!”

This is the place to be on crete! What a wonderful People. They are kind helpful and funny! The apartment is very nice. The whole building is carefully designed. Get away from the beaten track and come to manolis and filitsa!

“Cosy little paradise”
Lots of love has been put into this charming boutique hotel situated in the heart of Crete. Feliza and her son – the owners – have converted four 17th century buildings into a small family-run hotel where they personally take care of guests staying in the 12 rooms.
Rethymno – the town in which the hotel is based is quite lively. There’s also a delicious Cretan restaurant around the corner from here which I much recommend. Get there before 9pm or else all the food will be sold out (yes, it’s that good). What’s best about staying in this part of town is the fact that the rest of the island is very accessible. We wanted to see as much of the island as we could during our 5 day stay and couldn’t have been more pleased with our choice.
Treats and flowers are left out in the porch overnight for those who like a midnight snack.
I’d go back and stay there in a heart beat!

Filitsa and her son welcome you to the Calergi Residence with such friendly hospitality, I could not fault our stay here at all. The apartment was excellent and all the staff were so helpful, witty and friendly. The attention to detail was second to none and there are so many little touches that made our stay perfect. The cleaners go above and beyond expected levels of service, the best I have ever encountered! The grounds are beautiful, the location is perfect for a relaxing stay, a short distance from Rethymnon, which is amazing! Filitsa and her team will help you with absolutely anything and are the most genuine hosts I have ever met. Thank you for such a lovely experience!

We enjoyed this place, usability, and advice from the owner and Manuel. Juice on arrival, cookies self service, candles at night, constant cleaning around the pool, superb roof terrace, very comfortable bed, and functional accommodation made our stay a very enjoyable one. The village is charming and relaxing. ”
